[THIN] Re: Server spec's

I agree that W2k8 and XenApp 5 was terrible and XA 6  is much more of a feature 
rich and stable 
platform. I'd suggest however that Citrix weren't quite ready for W2k8, hence 
XA5 for 2k8 was not 
even close to XA6. Remember Metaframe 1.8a for Windows 2000, when windows 2000 
was just 
released. An then very quickly, they came out with Metaframe XP.

For those wanting to dive into W2k8 R2 RDS and see what it's all about you can 
download an ebook:

Or for those interested in powershell, virtualisation or other ebooks:
